### Non-metric Continua that support Whitney maps

(2009-02-23)

An example of a non-metric continuum is constructed, where every non-degenerate subcontinuum is non-metric, that supports a Whitney
map. Additional non-metric examples are given and examinations of conditions under which ...

### Poroelasticity

(2009-02-23)

Poroelasticity is the study of elastic deformation of porous materials saturated with a fluid and the coupling between the fluid pressure and the solid deformation.
Considerable progress has been made in formulating ...

### On O-Basis Groups and Generalizations

(2008-09-09)

A class of finite groups which we call o-basis groups is generalized and explored. One
reason for interest in these groups lies with the concept's origins. The notion of o-basis
group arose from the study of the existence, ...

### Solving the Inverse Kinematic Robotics Problem: A Comparison Study of the Denavit-Hartenberg Matrix and Groebner Basis Theory

(2008-09-09)

The aim is to analyze two very di®erent methods for solving the inverse kinematic
robotics problem. The ¯rst method, called the Engineering Approach, uses the Denavit-
Hartenberg Matrix, and the second method, called the ...

### k-star Decompositions of Lambda-Fold Complete Multipartite Graphs

(2008-09-09)

We examine the problem of k-star decompositions on lambda-fold complete multipartite
graphs. After a brief examination of the computational complexity issues involved, we
present complete proofs for necessary and sufficient ...

### Development of Striae Distensae - A Mechanochemical Model

(2008-09-09)

Striae distensae, otherwise known as stretch marks, are common skin lesions found
in a variety of clinical settings. They occur frequently during adolescence or pregnancy
when there is rapid tissue expansion, but may ...

### A novel finite element discretization of domains with spheroidal geometry

(2008-09-09)

We describe and analyze a new finite element discretizations for domains with spheroidal
geometry. In particular, we describe how the method can be used to approximate solutions
as well as eigenvalues and eigenfunctions ...

### Hamilton Decompositions of Graphs with Primitive Complements

(2008-09-09)

A graph G is a pair (V, E) where V is the set of vertices(or nodes) and E is the set of edges connecting the vertices. A graph is called k-regular, if all of its vertices are incident with k edges. A k-factor of a graph G ...

### Disjoint Intersection Problem For Steiner Triple Systems

(2008-09-09)

Let (S, T_1) and (S, T_2) be two Steiner Triple systems on the set S of symbols with the set of triples T_1 and T_2 respectively. They are said to intersect in m blocks if |T_1 intersection T_2| = m. Further, if the blocks ...

### Path Curvature on a Convex Roof

(2008-09-09)

Given a set of rectangles, R1 through Rk, where Ri and Ri+1 share a common
edge and these common edges are congruent and parallel to each other. The resulting
”roof” is part of the surface of a convex body. We’ll consider ...
